Event Navigation


Why did the French journey to North America in the 1600s and why did their efforts to establish a colony end in disaster — and set the stage for the American Revolution? Jeff Heller, a historical novelist, uses slides and commentary to present the fascinating story of how fighting, folkways and even fashion influenced the actions taken by the French in their bold quest to claim a continent.
